What is Order-X and how can it add value to your electronic ordering?
Sending a purchase order in the correct data format is critical. Order-X helps you complete orders from your purchasing department to supplier.
Order-X is the new European standard designed to make your electronic ordering simpler and quicker. The Order-X format mirrors the electronic invoice format of Factur-X and uses identical data structures. Here, an Order-X purchase order is an XML file embedded in a PDF/A-3. The result is a single, secure option that is both human and machine-readable.
Order-X is based on the United Nations UN / CEFACT Supply Chain Reference Data Model (SCRDM). You can choose between three profiles: Basic, Comfort, and Extended. These profiles are designed to provide flexibility, whatever the size of your company.
To deliver your Order-X purchase orders to your chosen vendor, you need an efficient EDI (Electronic Data Interchange). As the Order-X format is a universal standard, soon, many companies will be requested to make use of it. Compleo Hybrid can assist you with processing your purchase orders into the Order-X format and the delivery of these purchase orders.
